Nanopore Digest: Cell-free DNA sequencing and methylation calling for non-invasive cancer detection

29th June 2023

Detecting cell-of-origin and cancer-specific methylation features of cell-free DNA from nanopore sequencing

Here Katsman et al. show that cell-free DNA can be used to detect cell-type specific and cancer-specific methylation changes, as well as cancer-associated fragmentation signatures, using shallow Oxford Nanopore whole-genome sequencing (WGS) of liquid biopsies. Discussing the platform’s potential, they state that ‘the simplicity of native [nanopore] sequencing and the number of features that can be extracted from a single run, combined with the low cost and portability of [the] sequencer, make it an interesting proposition for clinical settings’.

Knowledge Exchange: Methylation detection with nanopore sequencing: Reduced-Representation Methylation Sequencing

This Knowledge Exchange, taking place on 16th August at 3 pm (BST), will introduce Reduced-Representation Methylation Sequencing (RRMS): a targeted methylation detection method utilising adaptive sampling for cost-effective, PCR-free enrichment during sequencing. With RRMS you can uncover changes in methylation patterns associated with changes in gene expression and diseases such as cancer, as well as call CNVs, without any additional sample prep.
